Etihad Airways
Abu Dhabi - WAM

Etihad Airways has officially opened a new state-of-the-art Crew Briefing Centre, CBC, in Abu Dhabi. The purpose-built crew terminal, the first built by the airline, is the most advanced of its kind in the region, and is fitted with leading-edge baggage handling systems, electronic check-in kiosks, security and customs scanning equipment and E-gate facilities for immigration control.

The airline will provide user-friendly technology and convenience for its 2,250 flight crew and approximately 5,800 cabin crew during the check-in and briefing processes prior to boarding their flights. Operating crews will be provided with up-to-date flight information such as flight plans, weather reports, destination information, service protocol and passenger data, for review in dedicated briefing areas within the CBC.

James Hogan, Etihad Airways' President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "We are tremendously proud to open this spectacular facility, which has been designed and built to provide our operating crew, and those of our partner airlines, with the latest technological advances and the utmost convenience."

The technology used in the CBC allows operating crews to start their travel from home by using their phones and tablet devices to connect to the centre, providing the airline with a higher degree of visibility to guarantee a seamless operation. On their journey to the airport, crew members will receive real-time information about the flight and the airline will receive up-to-date information about their expected arrival time at the airport.

Located adjacent to Terminal 1 at Abu Dhabi Airport, the contract for the building of the CBC was awarded to British construction firm McLaren, which operates from its two UAE bases located in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. The terminal features 20 fully-equipped pilot and cabin crew briefing rooms, four of which can be joined to accommodate larger Airbus A380 crews.

Etihad Airways has opened three crew lounges within the CBC. The luxurious Landside Lounge, located on the first floor, is equipped with WiFi, computers, hot and cold beverage stations, and shower facilities. The smaller Airside Lounge is equipped with the same facilities with the exception of showers. The airline has also provided a landside Quiet Room where crew can relax in a calm environment before they commence their duties.

The CBC was completed with the cooperation and support received from Abu Dhabi Airports Company, which released the necessary land required, and which was instrumental in expediting the approval of the appropriate permits necessary for the construction of the facility.

The CBC is an airside / landside facility which also accommodates government entities such as Police, Customs, Immigration and State Security, and meets all necessary health and safety requirements set by the relevant authorities.
